Loads for 223 & 80 gr Custom Competition?

Any one have experience and success with the Nosler 80 gr Custom Competition?

I have a 223 bolt gun with a Kreiger 8tw barrel and want to load heavier bullets

I've been using 748 for my 223's but not wedded to it

Appreciate some input

    Use either Varget, Reloder 15 or N140 in there, and you'll be good to go. The 748 is decent for bullet up to about 69 grains, but not so hot for heavier projectiles. Haven't used the Noslers, but have sent many (many) thousands of 80-82 grain Bergers and SMK bullets down with these combinations.

    4895 will treat you well for the heavier pills too. Tac is easier to meter and will do well, but will be a bit slower than Kevin's choices and 4895.
